What I liked

I liked the personal journey of the main character…others have mentioned that they’re not sure what to make of him, and I can see how they would feel this way about him. He is not an easy character to label, but he is a compelling character to watch and feel empathy for. The play explores themes of toxic masculinity, creative vs. monetary fulfillment, men’s views of women, the choices we make and the consequences of those choices.
Very thought-provoking, very well-acted (by ALL), very engaging theatre.

What I didn't like

The ending was a bit rushed, I think the lights may have come up too soon. Very fixable.

My overall impression

Pay no attention to the previous reviewer; I heard there is a disgruntled cast member who was fired from the production and has an obvious axe to grind. My bet is that it was this person who wrote this negative and obviously biased assessment, so completely unlike any of the other reviews. This is a terrific, complex play with many layers. Go see it.
